Naoki Matsuda and Shinya Miyabe (Sakaiya Sports) who provided this information. 

Taken during a break at a small peak beyond the traverse zone near the summit of Mt. Aka

There was little snow like in the snowy season, but the temperature was low, so the crampons were effective because they were not in a rotten state but were squeezed.
As I approached the windy Mt. Iou, I walked mostly on the rocky ridge in the latter half.

Even though it is Yatsugatake in the midwinter, there is surprisingly little snow! !!
Even if there is little snow, it is still a season when you cannot be alert.
When you enter Yatsugatake at this time, please make sure you have proper equipment, a solid plan, and information gathering.
